I’m a food addict – that much is true, but how does that factor into my current weight? I believe being overweight is a symptom of my addiction, however I recently noticed over the last couple of years that I have a weight loss/gain pattern. Every November I start to lose weight and continue to do so until about March when I stop losing weight. Then in April, May, June, July, and August I gain weight.
There isn’t a huge food festival in Phoenix all summer long, so what gives? There is no mystery to solve here – its HOT in the summer and I stop running. You can clearly see what I’m talking about when you compare my weight against my running stats over the last twelve months:
I need to figure out how to stay active when its a hundred and flames outside. Yes, I do eat like a horse, BUT I believe the chart above clearly shows that the more I run, the more weight I will lose. Don’t get me wrong, food is a big part of the equation, but I believe what you are seeing in the chart is the result of trading late night snacks with late night runs…
So now I have to ask myself, how to I get through April, May, June, July, and August without gaining weight!
